A method of pre-trial discovery which consists of maintaining a witness statement that is taken under oath in a question-and-answer type form (as it would be in court), while also giving an opportunity to the adversary to be present and cross-examined. All of the events during a deposition are reported and transcribed steno-graphically, called an oral deposition.

Often, statements received during a deposition serve as the most common form of discovery, and may be taken of any witness (whether or not they are a party to the action).

Depositions may also be taken upon written interrogatories where the questions are propounded to the witness by the officer who is taking the deposition, called depositions on written interrogatories.
